New initiatives to safeguard the 2019 federal election

January 30, 2019

This morning, the Government of Canada announced a range of new initiatives to safeguard the 2019 federal election.

In the current environment, no single entity working alone can ensure election security; meeting today's challenges requires a coordinated effort. For this reason, Elections Canada welcomes a whole-of-government approach to this important priority.

In its preparations for the next federal election, Elections Canada has been working closely with the national security agencies and the Commissioner of Canada Elections. We rely on their expertise so we can focus on our primary objective: administering the election and ensuring Canadians know where, when, and ways to register and vote.
